I’m a bilingual multimedia journalist and entrepreneur, founder of two English-language publications about current events in South America: The (Buenos Aires) and The Essential (Washington, DC). You may have seen me on The Bubble hosting a popular weekly video segment, a tongue-in-cheek take on Argentine politics.
With more than a decade of expertise covering Latin America and US Politics, I have also written and worked for prestigious Argentine media such as Infobae, the Buenos Aires Herald and Ambito Financiero.
As a contributor, I have written for influential international publications such as The Guardian, Monocle or Index for Censorship.
My opinion has been featured in foreign media such as CNN En Espanol, Al Jazeera, NPR and Telemundo.
As a speaker, I have given multiple presentations in Latin America and the US about the future of journalism, how social media impacts our lives and the rise of disinformation (a.k.a. “fake news”) at events hosted by Social Media Day, Buenos Aires Emprende, SMD Uruguay and the Council of the Americas among others.
I have a Bachelor of Social Sciences and Humanities from the University of Palermo and also graduated from the TEA School of Journalism in Argentina. I am a member of the Argentine Journalism Forum (FOPEA, a Knight Center partner) and the CARI Key Opinion Leaders group. In 2017 I was awarded the Gaimusho fellowship by Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Originally from Mallorca, I spend most of my time jumping around three countries that I like to call home: Spain, Argentina, and the United States.
When I’m not fighting disinformation, you can find me exploring ancient archeological sites, visiting world-class museums or simply looking for some long lost mythological artifact.
We live in a time of information warfare. Every time we grab our phone and use our finger to scroll down our social media feeds, we are potentially exposed to an endless stream of photos, articles, comments and links that introduce us to false and distorted facts that in many cases are purposely designed to mislead.
On Facebook, on YouTube, on Twitter, on WhatsApp… What some like to call “fake news” these days is nothing more than widespread disinformation that is part of a complex misinformation ecosystem. And this phenomenon is so strong that it has the power to reshape our world. The recent explosion of false or misleading information along with conspiracy theories surrounding the coronavirus pandemic is evidence of this.
I recently decided to focus my work on this issue because I want to make a difference. My goal is to help audiences acquire the necessary tools to slow down its spread: How to identify disinformation, how to attack it and how to work with others to slow it down. As a society, it’s time for us to work on digital resilience and stay alert.
This so-called “post-truth” world we’re living in is nothing but a referendum on reality and we all need to work together to stop it.
